A Chromatographic View of a SilcoNert®-treated Sample Flow Path

An inert sample flow path is imperative for accurately quantifying sample profiles that are now more complex than ever before. Regulatory requirements coupled with increasingly difficult samples and sampling environments require solutions that cannot be achieved with any selection of raw material alone; metal components provide adequate robustness but quickly adsorb important molecules that must be analyzed at trace levels. In order to accurately quantify these critical compounds, the entire sample flow path throughout the analyzer must be inert to ensure that the whole sample reaches the detection point.
